UKRI Open Access Review: extended until 29 May
Posted on 17/02/2020
UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) is reviewing its open access policies for peer-reviewed research articles and academic books that result from research supported by UKRI.
As part of the OA Review a consultation has been published setting out UKRI’s proposed OA policy and related considerations and asking questions to gather views and evidence. It also includes high-level questions to help inform the development of the OA policy for research outputs submitted to the Research Excellence Framework (REF) exercise following REF 2021. The relationship between the UKRI OA Review and the REF is explained further in the consultation.
UKRI is keen to gather responses from any organisation, group or individual with an interest in research and innovation. Responses must be submitted using the online response form, which is accompanied by a detailed consultation document outlining policy proposals and context relevant to each question.
